Being familiar with the background of this gentleman, there is no reason to be surprised by the perplexing windings his musical ways have taken. Could it be that the present release is just a natural manifestation of deep philosophical considerations that expose obvious correlations between New Music, improvised jazz and algorithmic composition?
"Lars from Mars" reveals a confident flair for the very particular nature of electronic music. Thru the use of archetypal quintessence, he manages to transport the listener to remote lateral branches of forgotten galaxies, as well as underwater colonies of unsettling life forms, inhabiting retro-futuristic spheres.
Early memories of acid techno - such as 808 State, Phuture and Mandroid - are evoked, as Lars comes up with selfprogrammed software weapons that generate a stunning variety to deceitfully straight sequences, far above any 16-step drummachine.
A strong dose of absurd humor is present here, in the playful patterns that hide between bone-dry beats and deep, melancholic bass-lines, echoing the New Music composition background of this gentleman from Mars.
A fine and exceptionally interesting debut by a bold musical universalist.
